Intel is all set launch its upcoming Rocket Lake-S desktop CPUs in the coming days and we have seen a number of benchmarks of these processors. The flagship 8-core Core i9-11900K has been spotted many a times, however, the new CPU-Z benchmarks proves its single-core dominance, we saw in Geekbench as well.
The new Intel CPU based on Cypress Cove architecture has managed to put some interesting scores on CPU-Z. The 8 core, 16 threaded CPU has a max all-core boost of 4.8GHz and 3.5GHz base clock speeds whereas the single-core boost goes up to a whopping 5.3GHz.
Tested on the ASUS ROG Maximus XII Extreme motherboard with 32GB of DDR4 memory clocked at 3200 MHz, the upcoming Intel processor manages to score 716 points in a single-threaded benchmark while 6539 points in the multi-threaded test.
The 8-core Intel Core i9-11900K will go head-to-head with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, which in our review (at stock) scored 661 points in single-core and 6578 in multi-core. This means, as predicted, even though Intel will snatch back its single-core prowess but fail to beat in multi-core.
